Transcript of Plagiarism & Citing Sources
What is it and why does it matter to me?
to steal and pass off
(as the ideas or words of another)
as one's own
definition from www.wordcentral.com
plagiarism is a form of
If you wouldn't steal someone's
make sure you don't steal
their words or ideas!
Plagiarism can be
...but either way
Copy & pasting off the Internet
Copying off a friend
Having someone else write your paper
Buying a pre-written paper online
Not citing your sources or making up sources
Failing to give credit for images or media used
Not citing sources correctly
Using too many quotes
Not giving enough of your own ideas
With either type of plagiarism,
you are selling yourself short!
By learning proper citation
methods, you give yourself the power to learn, create, and share the RIGHT WAY!
Not only is citing your sources
the right thing to do,
it also keeps you from suffering
the consequences of plagiarism!
Ways to use
(Rohrbach & Valenza)
When you "QUOTE" you are using someone's exact words.
This is what you do if you can't think of a better way to say something.
Paraphrasing is taking someone else's thoughts or ideas and writing them in your own words.
Even if you are paraphrasing,
you must give credit
and cite your source!
You summarize when you take
only the main ideas from a work
and elaborate using your own thoughts.
Those sources still need to be cited!
